Play • 36 min

   Joy Huber, a stage 4 cancer survivor,  was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at age 33. Joy endured three years of chemotherapy suffering the complete loss of her shoulder-length hair. During her cancer journey Joy discovered, “While no one’s happy they have cancer, you can have cancer and still be happy.”
   Joy launched the “Dose of JOY” Podcast to serve as your personal guide to cancer. The podcast has a lot of helpful information and includes 'must do's and never do's' to help you on your cancer journey, or as you support a loved one on theirs. Morgan James Publishing of New York City published Joy’s book titled “Cancer with JOY.” She has blogged for The Huffington Post, and received standing ovations when speaking to cancer patients & survivors. Joy’s unique approach to her total hair loss was featured in “Coping with Cancer” magazine. Joy’s Master’s degree is in Health Communication, and she is professionally trained in coaching individuals through Coach U. “Like” the “Dose of Joy Podcast” Facebook page to receive links to the helpful resources Joy highlights on her show.
